Seeming like an escape to an exclusive tropical resort, this just-completed showplace creates a compound-like oasis right on Ocean Boulevard in Delray Beach's sought-after Seagate neighborhood, less than half a mile from beach access and the private-membership Seagate Beach Club. A masterful blend of sophistication and understated simplicity, this island-inspired estate by Boca Raton architect JSR Design Group infuses classic style with a fashion-forward look. Hidden behind privacy walls on the spacious corner property, the stunning pool courtyard serves as the centerpiece outdoor space between the four-bedroom main residence and the fabulous cabana/guest house, both designed with thoughtful attention to the aesthetics and quality of each detail. The stylish decor is light and fresh in soft tones calling to mind the sands and sea.
This is a home meant for effortless luxury living and entertaining, featuring a bright and airy great room that flows freely from the main gathering space to the dining area and epicurean's kitchen. Outdoors, the courtyard oasis beckons to a series of lounge areas, intertwined among the glistening pool's soothing fountains and waterfalls, where guests can enjoy drinks at the swim-up bar or the cabana's main bar, served by a pass-through from the professional-grade summer kitchen inside. Looking out over the pool courtyard from the upstairs verandah of the main house, the exquisite pavilion-inspired master suite creates a luxe sanctuary that speaks of comfort and relaxation. Complete with a custom-outfitted three-bay garage wired for lifts, giving the potential for the car collector to house six vehicles, this alluring new Seagate estate is nothing short of pure perfection.
South Ocean Boulevard, Delray Beach, Florida. Fringed by the ocean's sugar sands in Old Florida beauty, Seagate is a sought-after beachside neighborhood located only about a mile south of famous Atlantic Avenue's boutiques and bistros in vibrant downtown Delray Beach. In the heart of South Florida's Gold Coast, between Boca Raton and Palm Beach, historic Delray Beach is known as a charming village-by-the-sea and a resort destination featuring pristine "Blue Wave" beaches.
On a prime corner property on Ocean Boulevard, this new island-inspired estate compound indulges effortless resort-at-home living, centered on a stunning courtyard featuring a custom Diamond Brite saltwater pool with spillover spa, arcing fountains, waterfalls, and in-water seating at the swim-up bar. A shady verandah and garden pergola line the lounge terrace. Across the courtyard from the main residence, the cabana/guest house has a professional-grade summer kitchen just inside from the awning-covered outdoor bar, and also provides a bedroom, bath, and outdoor shower.
Featuring spacious open living areas, the total of 6,937± square feet has five bedrooms and five and a-half baths - including the cabana/guest house - plus a three-bay garage. Amenities include impact-rated windows and exterior doors, a generator hook-up, LED lighting, three water heaters, and two Electrolux-applianced laundry rooms. German-crafted porcelain tile floors carry through the main level, with marble floors upstairs. Crisp white millwork and plantation shutters underscore the fresh and airy environment. Outdoor railings are of extremely durable Fypon.
First Floor: Set off by a tongue-and-groove paneled ceiling, the gallery foyer flows into the expansive great room that combines the living/dining areas and kitchen, brightened by windows on three sides and opening to the pool courtyard. As practical as it is stylish, the kitchen is outfitted with fine custom cabinetry, stone counters, and tile backsplashes, and encompasses a breakfast nook plus two pendant-lit islands, one with a bar counter. Chef's appliances include the Thermador induction range, oven, refrigerator/freezer, and dishwasher as well as a GE Monogram microwave and U-Line wine cooler. A powder room adjoins the great room. Off the foyer is a private bedroom/office with walk-in closet and en-suite bath.
Second Floor: Atop the broad staircase is a sitting area that overlooks the pool courtyard. Through a gallery hall, the large three-exposure master suite creates an airy pavilion feel - rising to a wood-beamed, peaked ceiling - and opens to a long verandah, a relaxing outdoor space above the pool courtyard. Built-ins in the master bedroom include a morning bar and desk. Two wardrobe rooms are next to the suite's luxe marble bath, done in a soft tonal palette, featuring a free-standing soaking tub, sizeable multi-head shower, dual vanity, and private water closet. On the other side of the hall, two bedrooms both have en-suite baths, walk-in closets, and Juliet balconies.
